The 'Strawberry Lipstick' hitmaker has called out Newcastle's O2 Academy for allegedly turning down his request to provide 'gender-neutral facilities' for his fans.

AceShowbiz - YUNGBLUD has accused Newcastle's O2 Academy of not "complying" with his request for "gender-neutral facilities" on his tour.

Ahead of his concert at the English venue on Tuesday night (12Oct21), the "Strawberry Lipstick" rocker insisted it was "important" to provide gender-neutral toilets on his Life on Mars Tour to make life easier for his non-binary fans.

In a post on Twitter, the star told the venue to "get out of the dark ages" before admitting he's "so excited to be in Newcastle" while posing in front of a "gender-neutral toilets" sign.

In the clip, he began, "It was really important to me that there would be gender-neutral facilities on this tour because I know how hard it is for non-binary people at gigs sometimes going to the toilets and stuff. So that's happening."

"Except for some reason, Newcastle don't want to comply. Get out the f**king dark ages. What the f**k."

He added, "I am so excited to be in Newcastle... If the council's got a f**king problem with it, you come to me."

Officials from the O2 Academy have yet to respond to Yungblud's claims.

YUNGBLUD identified himself as pansexual. "It doesn't matter what genitalia you've got or what you identify as, if I love you, I love you and that's it, and that's [something] I've struggled with my whole life, because I didn't know what I was," he previously said.

"I couldn't quite put a label on it, then I learned about pansexuality from magazines and the internet and I think it's so beautiful that sexuality has really come to the forefront of my generation's mind, that you can be beautifully yourself."
